ive found over the years that my cats get these 'notions' in their heads. it doesnt usually last long unless its -really- annoying. Hunters cord chewing for example. so perhaps if you are less annoyed, your cat will eventually find another past time?
that or you can put things on the floor like pebbles for the cat to play with and maybe she wont go looking for dirt to bat.
